Our Mathematical Universe

Our Mathematical Universe

Max Tegmark
Professor, Massachusetts Institute of Technology
May 8, 2015
In this lecture, Tegmark surveys how humans have repeatedly underestimated not only the size of the cosmos, but also the power of the human mind to understand it using mathematical equations. He explores how mathematics in physics has allowed us to predict Neptune, radio waves, and the Higgs bosons. Tegmark also discusses how we should think of ourselves in a cosmic perspective.
